Here is an interesting article regarding the position of the Besao community regarding tourism in their town.

The people of Besao have been perceived to be against tourism entering their municipality but according to SB member Pedro Macario, they are just wary on the effect of tourism to their environment. The i-Besao’s truly realize the advantages of tourism but they are more concerned in the preservation of their natural gifts for the next generations. Accordingly, while opening its doors to tourism, the observed disadvantages of tourist arrivals in Mt. Province particularly in Sagada made the municipality of Besao give discretion in letting tourists enter their municipality. [source]
